Search and rescue teams responded to four incidents in Northern Ireland within eight hours yesterday morning, with all those in danger returned to safety.

The Community Rescue Service (CRS) said teams assisted an injured man in Belfast just after 2am in the first incident.

Later, at 3.39am, a high-risk missing person in the north Antrim area required an immediate response from Ballycastle, Coleraine and Ballymoney teams.

They were located by CRS within an hour.

At 5.22am the CRS teams responded to help a man in danger in the north west area.

The next emergency was for a missing person on the north coast at 9.32am. All were found safe.

CRS regional commander Sean McCarry said: "We thank our volunteers for their continued selfless and steadfast commitment."

CRS is a charitable search and rescue organisation operated by volunteers from across the province.
